You will need a linux CD to replace the bootloader grub, which will give you the choice of booting windows or ubuntu. I would suggest the live knoppix cd, but any live distro will be fine. There is a very bief description in the ubuntu wiki, which is here:
http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu#H...s_installation

If your drive is an IDE hard drive, the command
Code:
grub-install /dev/hda
should do it. If it is a sata drive, then it should become
Code:
grub-install /dev/sda
Peace,
JimBass
